I got in a few years ago. I forgot about their max. But folks do get purged for nonusuage. Keep trying--it's worth it.

And now, Mr. Wolf, you are lost in the ozone for sure. Amazing the variety of artists, no?

I assume you know about the ratio thing--just like shnflac. I leave everything that is uploading on and keep my ratio around .75.

holy shit dude - you aint kidding!!! mindboggling and kinda overwhelming at first (but in a very good way)

dl'ing a Gabriel show as we speak just to get my first out of the way :)

ive been a good doobie so far with shnflac and btree keeping my ratio running at .90 to 1.0
i generally leave it running as long as i can to let earlier shows still in my folder that are uploading keep going to others

I'm sure you're aware of this already dire, but if you jump on a torrent early it helps your share ratio a lot. I try to do that in general, but especially on dime. I didn't do that when I first started downloading from dime and my ratio was low...took awhile to get it back up. I believe you have to keep your ratio above a certain percentage to continue to use dime.

cool - i will keep that in mind for sure.

i generally leave at least 15 -20 shows in my etree folder of my most recent downloads and leave those up and running with azureus for hours and hours at a time - that seems to keep my ratio up pretty close to .95 most of the time.

at least so far anyways ;)

Which is good since a lot of assholes leave downloaders hanging. I hate it when I'm at 60 or so percent and the dl stops.

They'll notify you that you have not logged on in 30 days and that you must to maintain "membership". Same with lossless (maybe its lossless who is the only one to send reminders!)

Cool. I've gotten some great stuff there. Lots of Rolling Stones, Dylan, etc. Even some Ozzy to cure my metal fixes.

I've been advised that they purge every 10 min, so if they are at capacity (which they always are), refresh page at :09 and retry. I've just not had the time to do that. (yeah, right)
